Been playing a game since latest patch against Djack. No idea if he is on the forums but the game is on turn 8 so I am starting an AAR.

Djack seems to have a good grasp of the game mechanics and what to do as the Soviet.

So here goes.

Air raid. Typical starting outward and moving in. I cant figure out how to hit the airfields near Smolensk like the old days but this is a good result. This is actually the air casualties at the begin of turn 2.

AGN after Soviet 1st move. Most of the Baltic area is pocketed and all the pockets hold.

AGS after Soviet 1st move. Kovel pocket was broken which I expected because I messed up the Calvary division move. I sent an extra Panzer corps south to bust up any hope of a Soviet line anchoring to the north around Rovno. The plan was to send a 1st Panzer army corp to the center in its place. My thinking here is the extra Panzer corps makes a bigger impact in the south on turn one then it does in the center as you can get the pockets closed without it.

I also pushed forward with 17th army enough to make sure no leakers could get to my rails.

As you can see he has set up a huge checkerboard across the south.

In an interesting development my opponent looks as if he will be invading Hungary.

Losses at the begining of turn 2.

Atually now that I look at it I do not know when exactly this was taken but its around the time frame mentioned.

The end of turn 2 I only took one screenshot in the AGN area. River was crossed and he is building up forces near Pskov. AGC and AGN destroyed thier respective pockets.

AGN - 14 divisions, 4 regiments - 115,000 Soviets
AGC - 28 divisions, 7 regiments - 214,000 Soviets

AGS made very poor progress on the Lvow pocket as most of the infantry headed east. Soviet troops in the pocket headed west.

He probably doesn't realise that he could unfreeze all the forces of both Hungary & Italy that are in the Balkans
sound familiar.

Well I made a determination early that the amount of force he committed to this offensive would determine how much of the Axis allies I would commit to the war if they were all released by his actions.

You will see as I continue with the AAR he indeed commits a lot of troops to this endeavor.

AGN turn 3 end.

AGN plows forward. Typically I send a Panzer Corps from 3rd Panzer and 6 infantry divisions from reinforcements north but this game I decided to run the Leningrad push with what was given. I did add a Corps from 9th army that starts in the 16th army start zone. I was rather surprised to get across the river but perhaps my opponent counted Panzer divisions and didnt reinforce as much as I have seen.

AGC turn 3 end -

3rd Panzer thunders towards Smolensk. I am not used to the extra Panzer corps in this area and its presence is making a big difference. Industry in Mogilev is trapped and Vitebsk falls quickly.

AGS turn 3 end -

AGS hits the checkerboard like a wave and a few small pockets are formed. Panzers punch through towards Kiev. Lvow pocket holds on with his forces pushing towards Hungary.

Turn 3 Hungary final - Hes all in here I am anticipating Hungarians coming free soon. I have not been attacking him so it can be said he sorta did this all on his own.

AGN turn 4 end - Slow go as fuel is low. A little elbow room is made and a pocket created to the south.
